Food For Thought


When we look at modern man, we have to face the fact that modern man suffers from a kind of poverty of the spirit, which stands in glaring contrast with a scientific and technological abundance. We’ve learned to fly the air as birds, we’ve learned to swim the seas as fish, yet we haven’t learned to walk the Earth as brothers and sisters. - Martin Luther King Jr

No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background or his religion. People learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite. - Nelson Mandela

Into each life a little rain must fall, a little sun must shine, and therein lives growth. The heart will break and mend again with love, forgiveness, and time. We don’t choose the pain but we must choose to heal. Innocence lost is wisdom gained in heart, in mind, and in soul. - Unknown
